Figure 7.1 Masticate in vitro dry matter disappearance (▢), crude protein (⚫️), and neutral detergent fiber (△) changes with increasing maturity of tall fescue and switchgrass, Experiment 7B (dry matter basis). (See the Materials and Methods section of this experiment for treatment number descriptions, p. 47.)
Changes were noted for all three variables and are more easily viewed in figure form (Figure 7.1), with tall fescue differing in each variable compared with switchgrass
